A Perfect Day in Atlanta 

by Rev. Tim Downs 

In one day we praised the Lord with music and singing, we tackled business, 
remembered our loved ones who have passed on, and listened to what others 
had to say. It was a great day, with a little rain, but nothing to dampen the spirits 

of new and old friends coming together once again. 

Click here to watch video from 5 segments of the conference. 

Central Congregational UCC in Atlanta rolled out the red carpet for us all. They 
provided a team of church members that were ready to direct meeting attendees, 
prepare food for the hungry, coordinate the day's agenda and see that everyone 
felt at home. Thank you Central! 

Many joined us for the early morning Conversation 
Corners. There were eight different corners to 
choose from and the topics covered many 
interests. We had wonderful discussions and a lot 
of listening. Click here to read a reflection of the 
Transforming Churches Campaign discussion.
